Nothing is obvious but I'll make an exception here, of course it's Sensei Kurosawa.

@Jeorj, your choice is great since Takashi's in this list...
But I'm amazed how a list of any size, devoted to best Japanese directors, may not include Takeshi Kitano. Really.

Akira Kurosawa obviously for me. You can consider adding Hideaki Anno who has been doing excellent works in Japanese animation and that carry out Neon Genesis Evangelion
